Excuse me for my unperfect english Smile

I caught this Asilidae, in the wet part of the plain of la Crau, near a pond, in the south-east of France, V.4.2005, 25mm

It seems to be a Laphria, and perhaps ephippium...
What about ? Thx for all

Hello sylvain,
Welcome to the site! Grin
There seems to be nothing wrong with your Englisch, so why excusing yourself for it? Wink
About your Laphria, I think you are right by thinking this is a laphria ephippium.
Laphria flava has, as its name indicates, much more yellow hairs.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
